London Fashion Week, Apparel, Accessories
Earlier this summer, Rodeo Drive Resale (http://www.shoprdr.com), the premier reseller of 100% authentic Chanel bags, St. John Knits, and Marc Jacobs purses, offered fashion fans a glimpse of the high-profile fashion houses associated with the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Now the popular online store is once again eyeing the fashion happenings going on across the pond, as London Fashion Week showcased some of the best and brightest in upcoming luxury style.
While Prada served as the official sponsor of the Italian National sailing team, Hermes designed France's Olympic equestrian uniforms, and Italian luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo has designed the uniform for the Republic of San Marino, high style has returned to the UK as London Fashion Week set the stage for designers young and old to put their latest creations on display.
“London is a melting pot of design talent and 2012 feels like a very exciting time to be showing in the city," said Ruth Chapman, co-founder of Matches, an upscale British fashion retailer in an article posted by ABC News.
Earlier this month, New York Fashion Week had its fair share of highlights, namely the stylistic tastings of actress Katie Holmes, who saw her women’s clothing line, Holmes & Yang, soar in the weeks following her well-publicized split from Tom Cruise, according to a story by MTV UK. Even Holmes, who started the clothing line in 2008 alongside stylist and longtime friend Jeanne Yang, appears to have taken a renewed interest in the brand:
Typically seen in her t-shirt and jean pairing, Holmes donned her brand’s navy collared placket dress during a recent appearance on Project Runway.
The hype surrounding Holmes, the divorce and her clothing line culminated in the world’s fashion capitol. All eyes were on the Holmes & Yang brand during NYFW and Katie did not disappoint: Her fashion showcase was met by mostly positive reviews from show attendees and critics alike.
